“God is ready for our lives and our prayers to bear his kingdom fruit. Lives will be changed by the message of the Gospel, and the hearts of men, women, and children will be transformed and healed for all eternity when they place their faith in Jesus Christ.”

–Kevin Harney: Organic Outreach for Ordinary People
The Work of the Holy Spirit

“I’m more convinced than ever that the absolute highest value in personal evangelism is staying attuned to and cooperative with the Holy Spirit.… The only thing you need in order to sustain an effective approach to evangelism year after year is an ear fine-tuned to the prompting of the
Holy Spirit.”

–Bill Hybels: Just Walk Across the Room

Prayer Direction

Spirit of God, thank you for inviting me to be a partner with You in the glorious ministry of reaching people whose hearts are far from the Father. Help me to see you at work with sharper vision. Open my ears to hear your voice speaking at a higher volume. Move in me and through me with such power that I feel your boldness flowing freely. And where the enemy rears his ugly head and tries to keep people in his clutches and under the tyranny of his influence, work through me, in Jesus’s name, and set captives free. Amen
